Storyline

Two of three powerful artifacts allow Rugal Bernstein, a man of evil intent, to enter and control an alternate dimension where gamers have been entering into martial arts combat for fun. From there, he awaits adversaries, killing them rather than defeating them so that he alone will remain as The King of Fighters. As Rugal possesses lesbian lovers Vice and Mature to aid him, undercover CIA agent Mai Shiranui teams up with Iori Yagami and Kyo Kusanagi to stop him before he can unleash a dread spirit named Orochi upon Mankind.

Worst than expected
17 September 2010 | by theflawsofperfectionSee all my reviews

I've been watching video game adaptations ever since I was little and pretty much have a realistic sense of what to expect in movies like these, i.e., they tend to be less than stellar and deviate severely from the source material. I saw King of Fighters after I saw Tekken, so the latter became my point of comparison and, therefore, wasn't expecting much from the KOF movie. However,KOF just epically sucked.

Based on the credits, there seemed to be so many people involved in this movie and I can't understand how, with all these people, they couldn't come up with a decent movie. The movie had a pretty good A list cast that are all mostly well-experienced and well-respected in the action movie industry, but they all deliver their career worsts in this one movie.

The story was idiotic and the script was pointless. The movie runs at a snail's pace and all the action scenes were bland, at best, because just when you think that it's going to be better, it just disappoints.

I'm usually very forgiving of movies and understanding of their flaws, but this movie was an epic fail. Maggie Q, Will Yun Lee, Ray Park, and Sean Farris should all be ashamed. It looked like they just did this movie to pay the bills. This is a great example of what not to do in a movie, not just for video game adaptations. They'd have been better off making a porno.
